Free compatibility checking tool

WhyNotWin is a free application you can install on your Windows 10 computer. The tool helps identify if your PC is compatible with the free upgrade for Windows 11. Even though there aren't many features to consider, the WhyNotWin 11 app is an excellent app to download.

WhyNotWin is a unique application with only one alternative, Win11SysCheck. The alternative provides the same service except in more detail through the use of a command prompt screen. Either of these applications is essential to try before downloading Windows 11.

Windows 11

Windows 11 is the latest operating system for Windows computers. The software includes a free upgrade for Win 10 users. However, it has many high system requirements that make WhyNotWin a needed application.


Confirm compatibility

WhyNotWin is a tool used to confirm the compatibility of your computer for the Windows 11 operating system. The application lists the minimum required resources and hardware and slowly ticks off the criteria you meet, showing you what you have and what you lack. The program manages to quickly identify the components of your PC while checking if they’re compatible.

Low system requirements

WhyNotWin has low system requirements, making it run smoothly on almost any computer regardless of its age. As long as your computer has Windows 8 or higher, a 32-bit single-core processor, and at least 40 MB of RAM available. Additionally, the software occupies less than 100 MB of space on your hard drive. 

Easy to use

Using the WhyNotWin 11 software to identify if your PC is compatible with Windows 11 is easy. The app runs seamlessly after you download and launch it. While it runs, it’ll mark boxes that display if an area meets the minimum specifications for Win 11.

Visible interface

The WhyNotWin is easily visible and displays if a requirement is met. The coloured blocks show the state using red, green, and yellow statuses. These colours each display incompatible, compatible, and uncertain, respectively.

Check your compatibility

WhyNotWin is a great tool to install on your laptop before downloading the Windows 11 upgrade from Microsoft. The software will check if your system hardware meets the minimum requirements to run the new operating system. The application is free and low on resource usage while it runs and scans your computer.
